Are You Ready For Fall?

Today is officially the last day of summer 2009. As most of us know, the day after Labor Day is typically the last day of summer in Michigan. Magically the air changes, warm days don't feel as warm as the days shorten.

Coming off one of the worst winters and coldest summers (the experts state summer was 2 degrees cooler than normal and not one 90 degree or higher day in July), are you ready for Fall and the dreaded season that follows?

For TNG, Fall is the busy season. This weekend alone we have our Annual Supplier's Summit, Tiffany featuring Kemon Nights and our Manicure/Pedicure Summit.

It's also the time of the year that we finalize new products and begin production of thebeautybook. We also strategize for the upcoming year and finalize budgets, trade shows, events, and marketing campaigns.

Salons are typically busier this time of the year as well. Routines kick back into gear as school is back in session and women pay a more attention to themselves instead of their kids or gardens.

Short of visiting cider mills and watching the leaves change color, are you ready for Fall? Are you ready for shorter days and longer nights? Are you ready for DST change November 1? Are you ready for more snow and ice if you live in cold weather climates?

Are you ready for Halloween, Thanksgiving and then zooming into Winter with Christmas and New Years? Are you ready for 2010 as long as we are talking about being ready?

Seriously, I thought the Spartans were ready for Fall. The Lions are thinking about Fall 2015 or when Ford finally sells the team to a winner. One thing is for sure, the NFL knows Fall better than anyone else. You got to love their marketing strategy, letting fans knowing what week they are watching. Amazing.

Fall is a great time of year. And I'm ready for it. It's just that blasted season that follows that ruins it for most.

Happy Monday!
